Much like the TF2 engineer, I hail from the oilfield of West Texas. I am inspired by Stickley, Greene & Greene, and John Moses Browning.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself almost a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Chris Mc45,

Thanks for commenting on my post (solid red oak bed). Concerning your question about the bed posts, they are octagons and they were created by setting the table saw blade at a 22 1/2 degree angle, and running both sides of the board. Once those were completed, I placed biscuit joint along the boards edge, to create a sung fit. Hope this helps, and thanks again for the comment!
